WinCE 6.0 SMB Server with 2 WinCE Clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I have a problem connecting two (A and B) WinCE 6.0 Clients to one WinCE 6.0 SMB Server at the same time.

    The SMB Server is configured to share a directory, no password needed.

    1) If I connect Client A to the SMB Server only, everything runs fine, the Clients are connected and can access the shared files.
    2) If I connect Client B to the SMB Server only, everything runs fine, the Clients are connected and can access the shared files.

    3) But if I try to connect both Clients at once I got a strange behavior, after the successfully connection of the first Client, the SMB
        server refused to connect the second WinCE Client (Connection Error 53)

    4) More strange is that, if I use two Windows XP clients to connect to the SMB Server everything runs fine - both XP-Clients are
         connected, both Clients can access the shared files.

    5) If connect one of the WinCE Clients first and then the Windows XP Client, I face the same problem as with the two WinCE
        Clients - the SMB Server now refused to connect the second (Windows XP) Clients.

    Is there a undocumented limitation of WinCE 6.0 SMB Servers connecting to more that one WinCE Clients, or is it possible
    that this is a miss configuration of the SMB Server - Registry-Settings?

    Best Regards

  • Quick tought. Your WinCE devices must have different names when they are on the same network?

        "Name"="<Some Name>"
        "Desc"="<Some description of the system>"

    You can also set them via the Device Control Panel, if you have UI included.
    If not, you can get weird behavior

  • Hello Werner,

    thank you for the quick response.

    But that isn't the case each of the 3 devices (1 server, 2 clients) having unique Ident-Entries (Name-Field) as well as unique ip-addresses.

    As I stated each wince-client is capable the connect to the wince smb-server on it's own, the connected client
    has fully access to the shared files.

    The connection error occurs only for the second client after the first client is connected.

  • Set unique mac address for every client。
